co-lab artists

Mary MacLane is an interdisciplinary artist and designer hailing from the Central Coast of California. Through her studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Cuesta College, she has utilized printmedia, photography, and video to explore themes of heritage and contemporary urban landscapes.


Sara Bergh is a 27 year-old painter, illustrator, graduate student and craft enthusiast. She works in several different mediums, focusing in graphite and ink drawings as well as oil and acrylic paintings. Her artwork is a direct reflection of her personality and differs depending on which medium she is working in. Being a Gemini, her art often looks as if it’s been done by two completely different artists, catering to her two-sided personality. Her love for the arts has her constantly exploring new fields and mediums to express herself.  http://www.sarabergh.com/

Tim Caldwell, a self-taught painter, started painting in acrylics six years but has had a long string of creative moments. Tim is the type of artist who doesn’t want to reinvent the wheel. As Picasso said, “Bad artists copy. Good Artists steal.”

All Tim asks of life is a constant and exaggerated sense of his own importance. Some of things that will live longest in his memory… never really happened.

Sadie Rogers is a visual artist and creative entrepreneur based in San Luis Obispo, California. A “Jane-of-all-trades,” Sadie’s modalities include handlettering, watercolor, graphic design and mixed media, which she uses to cover surfaces for clients across California, to teach private classes, and to build her product line of prints, apparel and goods. Sadie’s work is driven by a passion for the natural world, radical self-acceptance, girl power, wabi-sabi...and a healthy dose of sarcasm and playfulness - all with an abstract, raw and unfinished flair. Inspirations include Shepard Fairey, Jackson Pollock, Banksy, Gemma O’Brien, Lisa Congdon, and any artist with a gripping bio, quirky personality and unconventional approach. Sadie’s magic comes to life with the help of her witty daughter Brooklin, her two fur children Roody and Buddy, hugs and coffee - lots of it. 

Justin Bournoville. Justin's art medium is acrylics/household paints and he specializes in action painting or abstract expressionism.  He has lived most of his life on the California Central Coast.He has been married for 18 years and has 3 children. Justin is an up and coming abstract expressionist artist who believes that, it doesn't make much difference how the paint is put on as long as something has been said. Technique is just a means of arriving at a statement. 

Chris Pedersen grew up on the Central Coast of California.  He explored his beautiful surroundings and discovered his drawing talent and creative imagination.

His art career started with a concentration of illustration and graphic design.  Currently Chris is making fine canvas oil paintings.  Chris has maintained the youthful fantasy aspect of possibility.  This dreamy realm fuels concepts which start as sketches and result in handsome well crafted paintings.  “Every time you go surfing it’s a new experience.”  He compares this to his artwork, “When you sit down to draw or create something, you never know what’s going to happen.” http://foreverstoked.com/


Charlie Clingman was raised in spacious rural settings which had animals to play with and horses to ride.  This planted the seed for his future exploration and appreciation of nature.  He finds that 20 years of international surfing experience has not only been a great thrill and good exercise but a fine way to observe the water and surrounding landscapes.  He seeks to have his paintings represent the beauty and action he encounters.  Charlie holds a passion for natural dynamics.  He feels that studying from life (plein air/painting outdoors) is essential.  http://foreverstoked.com/
